Araya Rasdjarmarearnsook - Village and Elsewhere

The exhibition will be on view from October 13, 2011 – January 31, 2012

100 Tonson Gallery proudly presents "Village and Elsewhere", the solo video and photography exhibition from a distinguished Thai female artist, Araya Rasdjarmarearnsook, who has participated in numerous solo and significant group exhibitions such as 51st Venice Biennale (Venice, Italy), 17th Sydney Biennale (Sydney, Australia), TRA The Edge of Reason at the Palazzo Fortuny 2011 (Venice, Italy) etc.

Inspired by "the Two Planets Series", her previous work in 2008, it combines the conversation and creates outstanding messages between masterpieces paintings by Van Gogh, Manet, Millet, and Renior and Chiang Mai's local scenes. It tells us about relationships between one place and another through the context of modern art.

Village and Elsewhere brings villagers to the communal ground of a Buddhist temple and faces them with contemporary artworks that are hanged among colorful paintings telling previous lives of the Lord Buddha. Unscripted responses from old people, children and monks (including homosexual monks) in response to provocative images of contemporary art by Jeff Koons, etc demonstrate how viewers see them in a different cultural perception, relating (or do not relating) to the current art world. The village is here and anything foreign to them is elsewhere. Or shall we look at it the other way round?

This exhibition will also include the documentary works that has been done in Japan, arranged by 100 Tonson Gallery in collaboration with Tokyo Wonder Site. In the documentary, the artist becomes a foreigner, bringing foreign images (her Two Planets Series, images of works by Jeff Koons and Cindy Sherman, and the work in 2007 "Insane") to a village and recording the monks and female psychosis patients' response to these objects and video from elsewhere.
